Application of Evolutionary Algorithm in Elasticity
2015 (English)In: Applied Mechanics and Materials, ISSN 1660-9336, E-ISSN 1662-7482, Vol. 816, 363-368 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article introduces evolutionary algorithms and their utilization in mechanicalengineering. First part of this work describes evolutionary algorithms and their characteristics. Themain body of evolutionary algorithms, the selection methods for parents and the types ofreproduction are explained in the next part of this article. Termination conditions are also discussed.Finally, the application of evolutionary algorithms to a problem in mechanical engineering isdescribed. Thereby, the material parameters for a Bodner-Partom model describing viscoelastoplasticmaterial behavior are determined by fitting data from experiments on Aluminum testsamples under tension load.
